GERMAN SHORT ROWS IN GARTER STITCH knit up to & including the stitch that will become the short row (which would be the equivalent of the stitch that's wrapped in the W&T method), turn work, slip the first stitch and take the yarn over the back and pull it very tight. Then knit remaining stitches as directed, keeping the first stitch after the short row at a tight tension. When you come to knit across the short row you will see that the stitch appears to have two legs (the result of pulling the stitch right over the needle) - simply insert the needle and knit both legs together as if they were one stitch. There's also a PDF tutorial on my website to go with this, should you prefer. And next up there'll be a video for grafting across German short rows in garter! #woollywormheadtutorials #instavideo #learnitwithwoolly #garterstitchftw #shortrowsftw #shortrows #germanshortrows #garterstitch #knitstagram #knittingtechniques #knittersofinstagram
GRAFTING GERMAN SHORT ROWS IN GARTER STITCH the one thing I really like about grafting German short rows is that they're a lot easier to graft than wrap & turn short rows - simply treat the double stitch as one stitch when grafting, just as you would when knitting across it! It also doesn't matter whether the GSR are one the front or back needle, as they're easily visible and there's less of an issue about RS vs WS. This is ridge high garter graft - insert needle into 1st stitch on front needle knit-wise, pull through & slip off; insert needle into 2nd stitch purl-wise, pull through & leave on. Repeat on the back needle (garter graft = do same on back needle as front).
